Harmony the springer spaniel
by Sandy Marcotte
Harmony is an amazing girl! We got her from a breeder just a month ago, she's 2 1/1 years old, had one litter of pups, wonderfully adjusted to living in our home w/my husband, mom in law and me. She is very sweet and calm, learns commands quickly, is so eager to please, so smart, loves everyone she meets, greets them w/her wiggly butt:-) She has the habit of pulling herself up by her back legs and very gently wants to hug, from her former owners. Definitely sweet at the beginning but not how we want her to greet everyone who comes over. We are training her "off", and show our friends how to reach down and pet her head and be friendly w/her without Harmony getting on them. She's getting it and doesn't try to climb up on mom at all anymore! Teaching her to play is more work for us and her. She is beginning to get that too as tonight my husband and I tossed the squeaky ice cream toy back and forth to each other and teased her to try to get it, every now and then, letting her get it. We're going to train her to bring it back to us. She's going to get it but then carries it right to her bed. Hmmmmm...any ideas on how to get her to return the toy to us??
